The Parish Council provides opportunities and activities for young people in Bishop's Cleeve including a Youth Council, holiday activities and a boxing club. It also funds an annual Young Person's award to celebrate achievements of younger local residents. Please see below for further information.
Bishop’s Cleeve Youth Council meets on the first Sunday of every month from 5.00-7.00 pm in the Parish Office. The Youth Council is open to anyone aged between 11 and 19 years old and provides an opportunity for younger people to have a say in what happens within the village, and also gain valuable and transferable skills.
The Young Person's Award was launched in 2018 to highlight the achievements of young people living in Bishop’s Cleeve. The Council recognises that many younger people make a valuable contribution to the community in various ways through, for example, fundraising, being a carer, volunteering, overcoming a barrier including illness or disability, or helping others.
The awards are made by the Parish Council annually, in a range of categories to include young people from 6-19 years.
The Parish Council funds a variety of activities, that are free of charge for young people aged 5-15 years, during school holidays in August and October. The activities are run by Bowerbirdy.
A weekly activity session, delivered by Play Gloucestershire, is held on Wednesdays (4.00 - 6.00 pm) at Sunrise Avenue during term times (excluding December and January).
